A parabolic mirror reflects the sun’s rays onto a matt black pot at the focal point inside the mirror. Therefore burns and glare can be avoided.
- The cooker can be used one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset.
- To ensure an optimal angle of insolation the cooker can easily be moved every 15 to 20 minutes.
- 700 watts of power → 3 litres of water boil in about 25 minutes in optimal insolation
- 12 litres pot → up to 20 people can be fed
• For stirring it is necessary that the pot is in the shade and the reflector has to be moved accordingly

The solar cookers are designed to enable local production with the simplest tools. For serial production of the solar cooker SK14 (band steel rack), we have compiled a set of workshop equipment with hand-operated tools which can also be obtained from us.
